Modifications


How is it possible to leave a bike factory stock?  Not for me!

The Trail Tracker begins life as more of a mountain bike, but I'm a beach cruiser kind of guy, so I'm looking for more of an upright, stretched out position.

This photo shows the modified seating position: lowered to the frame and set back as far as possible. The battery has been moved aft to allow for the seat, and to not interfere with the battery cable.

Also note the Shimano 3 speed derailleur, which takes a lot of the work out of going without electric power.

Next mod: new handlebars...
